Heads Up on June 26 Lunar Eclipse

                      The partial lunar eclipse on June 26, 2010 will last almost THREE HOURS with the exact at 11:38 UT aka 4:38 a, PDT. “At maximum, about 53% of the Moon’s surface will be covered by the dark-red core of Earth’s shadow. Sky watchers in the in Americas, Australia, east Asia and India are favored.” (quote from SpaceWeather dot com)

People in Mountain Time and Pacific Time will see the beginning of the eclipse but not the end because the Moon will have set below the horizon by then.  However, people in Hawaii will be able to view the whole eclipse, beginning with the penumbral phase at 10:57 pm Hawaiian Time, the actual eclipse’ start at 12:17 am, till the eclipse ends at 3:01 am, and the penumbral phase ends at 4:19 am. The actual eclipse therefore lasts about three hours.

[I have mentioned the website ShadowandSubstance dot com before, but let me do so again, now. The animations at that webpage for the SOLAR eclipse on July 11, show that the best viewing will be in the South Pacific, from Papeete, Tahiti to Santiago, Chile. The June 26 Lunar Eclipse and the July 11 Solar Eclipse appear to have almost identical paths.]

Astrologers chart the position of the lights (for the June LUNAR eclipse) as Sun at 4 degrees 50 minutes of Cancer, opposite Moon at the same degree of Capricorn. The Moon is disturbingly close to Pluto! Pluto indicates a major transformational process, and the cardinal signs are very active (or shall I say proactive).  I speculate that the effects of this eclipse will be rather long-lasting because the square to Jupiter and Uranus in Aries is applying.

The one puzzling part of the equation is the fact that most of this eclipse occurs over uninhabited ocean. Will some event occur out there in the middle of the deep blue sea, equivalent to the far-ranging effects of the current BP oil spill crisis, or to the Christmas tsunami? Will the public (Moon) in South America unite to oppose the crushing power of the multinationals, or of the World Bank/IMF (all Pluto entities)? [Amended to add: I do not mean to be alarmist or anything. Most eclipses pass without any major upheavals or news events. Yet after some thought, I think that an El Nino or La Nina event might be the most logical result of an eclipse in this region of the globe.]

[AMENDED TO ADD ON AUG. 15: I think I can count another ‘hit’ on this prediction of an El Nino/La Nina event. Recently found a link to a weather forecast for this summer for a ‘worsening drought’ in the US Southwest. Quote: "NOAA scientists blamed in part the unusually cold La Nina temperatures in equatorial parts of the Pacific Ocean, which affect U.S. climate patterns in ways that produce hotter, drier weather in the Southwest and typically occur every three to five years." This is from an article at http://www.aolnews.com/nation/article/worsening-drought-is-forecast-for-southwest-us/19557931 ]

A gift to my lovely readers —

As a special gift to my readers I thought you might enjoy some background music. A terrific writer and geek found these archived radio recordings of the Beatles for a Swedish radio show way back when. He cleaned them up a bit and edited them, and here they are. Five songs in cool condition. So turn up the volume alright already.
